In Leicester, about 2,800 hospitals have admissions (per 100,000) – there are smoking-related illnesses and more than four hundred people die each year in Leicester – all of which can be prevented by leaving smoking.
With the health benefits departing the average smoker saves over £150 a month and almost £2000 a year. The cost of the NHS in Leicester is estimated to be around £58.8 million a year, and 17.8 million in Leicester.
